CSIS Americas Program: Prospects for the Global Creative Economy

On September 17 at 5PM EDT, join the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) Americas Program for a conversation on COVID-19's impact on the global creative economy.

The cultural and creative economy has been hardest hit amongst sectors by the current public health and economic crisis and will require targeted initiatives for it to be rebuilt. This discussion will draw upon the comparative experiences of the United States, France, and Colombia. Colombia, an effective representative of the Western Hemisphere in the creative economy sector, has already felt an economic shock due to COVID-19. France, a country renowned for its cultural and creative exports, has also been experiencing economic setbacks in its creative sector. As the world's predominant cultural exporter, the United States is also seeing a significant downturn in its creative industries and related jobs throughout all sectors of its economy.

The panel will feature Felipe Buitrago, Vice-Minister for Creativity and the Orange Economy of Colombia, Philippe Étienne, French Ambassador to the United States, and Dr. Carlos Díaz-Rosillo, Senior Deputy Chairman at the National Endowment for the Humanities.
